May Title: The Turner House

In May, we'll be reading The Turner House by Angela Flournoy and meeting up to discuss the book on June 1 at 6:30pm at our U District store.

The Turners have lived on Yarrow Street for over fifty years. Their house has seen 13 children grown, the arrival of grandchildren, the fall of Detroit's East Side, and the loss of a father. But now, as ailing matriarch Viola finds herself forced to leave her home, the family discovers that the house is worth just a tenth of its mortgage. The Turner children are called home to decide its fate and to reckon with how their pasts haunt—and shape—their family's future in this powerful debut work.

Monthly Refined Reads book discussions will rotate among different University Book Store locations around the Puget Sound.
